The Plight Of Modern Markets: How Universal Banking Undermines Capital Markets, Carolyn Sissoko 2014 BLR

The Plight Of Modern Markets: How Universal Banking Undermines Capital Markets, Carolyn Sissoko

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

This paper explains the process of competitive deregulation that led both the U.S. and the U.K. to embrace universal banking and to abandon the functional separation of financial activities that had long characterized their financial systems. The paper argues that only a few rare voices in the debate over universal banking that started in the late-1970s and continued for over a decade understood what was truly at stake. The principal argument in favor of separation, then as now, was that the commercial banking system, which is supported by a government “safety net,” needs to be protected from the ...


A Comprehensive Economic And Legal Analysis Of Tying Arrangements, Guy Sagi 2014 Seattle University School of Law

A Comprehensive Economic And Legal Analysis Of Tying Arrangements, Guy Sagi

Seattle University Law Review

The law of tying arrangements as it stands does not correspond with modern economic analysis. Therefore, and because tying arrangements are so widely common, the law is expected to change and extensive academic writing is currently attempting to guide its way. In tying arrangements, monopolistic firms coerce consumers to buy additional products or services beyond what they intended to purchase. This pressure can be applied because a consumer in a monopolistic market does not have the alternative to buy the product or service from a competing firm. In the absence of such choice, the monopolistic firm can allegedly force the ...

The Olympics, Ambush Marketing And Sochi Media, Adam Epstein 2014 SelectedWorks

The Olympics, Ambush Marketing And Sochi Media, Adam Epstein

Adam Epstein

The purpose of this article is to explore the concept of ambush marketing and the legal environment surrounding it. With the advent of the Sochi Olympic Games held in February, 2014, ambush marketing again makes its way to the forefront of national and international attention. Certainly, the discussion of ambush marketing in advertising strategies would be a useful tool at any point in a law course that addresses intellectual property such as trademarks and domain names, and consumer protection issues in general. For decades, non-official sponsors of the Olympic Games have found ways to use the Olympic event platform to ...

A Disclosure-Focused Approach To Compelled Commercial Speech, Andrew C. Budzinski 2014 University of Michigan Law School

A Disclosure-Focused Approach To Compelled Commercial Speech, Andrew C. Budzinski

Michigan Law Review

In 2010, the Food and Drug Administration passed a rule revising compelled disclaimers on tobacco products pursuant to the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. The rule required that tobacco warnings include something new: all tobacco products now had to bear one of nine graphic images to accompany the text. Tobacco companies filed suit contesting the constitutionality of the rule, arguing that the government violated their right to free commercial speech by compelling disclosure of the graphic content. Yet First Amendment jurisprudence lacks a doctrinally consistent standard for reviewing such compelled disclosures. Courts’ analyses typically depend on whether the ...


The Effect Of Forced Refocusing On The Value Of Diversified Firms, John G. Matsusaka, Yongxiang Wong 2014 BLR

The Effect Of Forced Refocusing On The Value Of Diversified Firms, John G. Matsusaka, Yongxiang Wong

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

This paper studies how investors responded when Chinese regulators required a group of large, publicly traded companies to divest their non-core hotel and real estate assets in 2010. The quasi-experiment allows direct estimates of the effect of diversification on value that are free from common selection problems in the literature. On average, stock prices rose 1 to 2 percent in response to forced refocusing, suggesting that corporate diversification was a value-destroying strategy for those firms. The implied “excess value/diversification discount” has at best a weak connection to the announcement return. The abnormal return was most positive for companies in ...


The Chapter 11 Efficiency Fallacy, Diane Lourdes Dick 2014 Brigham Young University Law School

The Chapter 11 Efficiency Fallacy, Diane Lourdes Dick

BYU Law Review

This Article challenges the persistent claim that Chapter 11’s increasing utilization of market mechanisms will help facilitate economically efficient resolutions of corporate financial distress. Using two recent case studies, I show that, in fact, these mechanisms are used by stakeholders with existing market power to take control of the restructuring process and extract rents at the expense of other constituents: creditors, equity holders, and—in the case of companies that receive governmental bailouts—taxpayers. These distortionary effects are obscured by a dominant, neoclassical legal paradigm that ignores institutional and political dynamics. I advance a new explanatory model that draws ...


Pride And Profit: Geographical Indications As Regional Development Tools In Australia, William Van Caenegem, Jen A. Cleary, Peter Drahos 2014 Southern Cross University

Pride And Profit: Geographical Indications As Regional Development Tools In Australia, William Van Caenegem, Jen A. Cleary, Peter Drahos

Journal of Economic and Social Policy

Geographical Indications (GIs) are intellectual property rights in placenames that evoke the typical qualities of agricultural products and foodstuffs that originate in particular districts. Presently, the EU is the dominant holder of protected GIs and the EU asserts that they are used extensively and effectively in EU countries as a rural and regional development tool. To date, Australia's response to GIs has largely been driven by perceptions of their impact upon trade gains and losses. Currently, Australia only has legal protection for wine-related GI's because of an agreement with the EU.

Given an increased focus on GIs internationally ...


More Than A Feeling: Emotion And The First Amendment, Rebecca Tushnet 2014 Georgetown University Law Center

More Than A Feeling: Emotion And The First Amendment, Rebecca Tushnet

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

First Amendment law has generally been leery of government attempts to change the marketplace of emotions—except when it has not been. Scientific evidence indicates that emotion and rationality are not opposed, as the law often presumes, but rather inextricably linked. There is no judgment, whether moral or otherwise, without emotions to guide our choices. Judicial failure to grapple with this reality has produced some puzzles in the law.

Part I of this Symposium contribution examines the intersection of private law, the First Amendment, and attempts to manipulate and control emotions. Only false factual statements can defame, not mere derogatory ...


After Search Neutrality: Drawing A Line Between Promotion And Demotion, Daniel A. Crane 2014 University of Michigan Law School

After Search Neutrality: Drawing A Line Between Promotion And Demotion, Daniel A. Crane

Articles

The Federal Trade Commission's (“FTC” or “the commission”) January 3, 2013 decision to close its longstanding investigation of Google1 brings to a close a flurry of discussion over the possibility that Google could become subject to a “search neutrality” principle in the United States. Although the Commission found against Google on several grounds, it rejected petitions from Google's critics to create a search neutrality principle as a matter of antitrust law. This essay briefly analyzes what remains of U.S. antitrust scrutiny of Internet search bias after the Google settlement. In particular, it suggests that a sensible line ...


Now You See It, Now You Don’T . . . Or Do You?: Snapchat’S Deceptive Promotion Of Vanishing Messages Violates Federal Trade Commission Regulations, 30 J. Marshall J. Info. Tech. & Privacy L. 827 (2014), Danielle Young 2014 The John Marshall Law School

Canada’S Anti-Spam Legislation: A Constitutional Analysis, 31 J. Marshall J. Info. Tech. & Privacy L. 1 (2014), Emir Crowne, Stephanie Provato 2014 The John Marshall Law School

Canada’S Anti-Spam Legislation: A Constitutional Analysis, 31 J. Marshall J. Info. Tech. & Privacy L. 1 (2014), Emir Crowne, Stephanie Provato

The John Marshall Journal of Information Technology & Privacy Law

On December 15th, 2010, the Government of Canada agreed to Bill C-28, the Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam Act, with the intent to “deter the most damaging and deceptive forms of spam… from occurring in Canada and to help to drive out spammers.” Canada‟s Anti- Spam Legislation (“CASL”) was born. Although CASL has only been in force since July 1st, 2014, we argue that the Act may not survive constitutional scrutiny as it unduly restricts freedom of speech.
